The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for instance, and you input the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is obtained, allowing you to look at the content from the right location. Usually a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.
